Why Sex Ed Needs To Include LGBTQ Issues

Would it shock you to find out that only four states have laws that require sex ed classes to be inclusive of LGBTQ issues and 12 states require that sexual orientation be a topic in sexual education classes? Not when the statistics show that 39 states and the District of Columbia require sex education and/or [...]

I Remember When…

Its June 2020, Pride month. The world is in a state of massive upheaval and we are seeing prejudice rear its ugly head in a means that rivals to the days of the early Civil Rights Movement. I don’t mean for this post to take away from the state of affairs we are currently watching [...]

Why Do We Need To Label Sexuality?

Why do we, as humans, feel the need to label everything that we interact with? Labels define a thing which creates a box for it to live in, the box gives us boundaries of what something is or is not. The boundaries offer us a safe place to navigate and to stay away from the [...]

The Need For LGBTQ Content Creators

I am going to drop some T on you that you may or may not realize. No one, and I mean absolutely no one, other than others like us are interested in or will put out the kind of content that we want to see. Nor will they put out content that accurately represents who [...]

Silencing of Queer Voices

Some of you probably saw that we have lost PRIZM magazine. In a state that doesn’t have a lot of resources for Queer journalists, this was a huge blow. We have already witnessed our Queer spaces disappearing and now we lose a valuable asset to our community. Where does that leave us and how can [...]

Laughter is Good Medicine

The current state of affairs seems dire, I get that. We are watching the new daily and seeing all that is going on around us, the feeling of the world imploding, and a general lack of care from those that are in power. It is a lot to take in and can spiral us into [...]
